Will Rahilly is a visual artist and filmmaker based in New York City. He is best known for his surreal short films, installations, and interactive video performances.

As a visual artist, he has exhibited photographs, drawings, performances, video art, and installations in galleries, film festivals, and art fairs over the last decade in the United States and internationally. While still continuing his fine art practice in Brooklyn, NY, he has begun to focus more on animation and film. As a director of this work, he typically creates all of its music, sound design, and effects.

He (it’s actually me writing this, hi!) is currently looking for a creative producer to work with on very short films in the NYC area.
